It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 months since Hurricane Irma did such massive damage to the Garden in September 2017. Over the past months we’ve re-planted, restored and re-shaped 70 percent of the Garden — and still managed to keep up with our wonderful events like Art in the Garden, Garden Mania, our student-friendly camps and our native plant nursery. We wrap them all up for you in the latest newsletter and give you a sneak peek at the best of our upcoming events.

Thank you for being among our loyal supporters. We appreciate you and what you have done for us this year. Enjoy the newsletter and please take the time to consider volunteering, becoming a member and making a donation.

And, if you’re feeling generous, you can make a donation to our Desbiens Pond Overlook Restoration Project.

Desbiens Pond Overlook Restoration

6% funded

Before Hurricane Irma in September 2017, the Floy Thompson Pond Overlook was one of the Garden’s most popular destinations for quiet contemplation.

Hurricane damage means the pond Overlook must be completely restored.

Two uprooted buttonwood trees moved the Overlook off its foundation.

Help us restore the pond Overlook

In September 2017, Hurricane Irma destroyed the Garden’s Floy Thompson Pond Overlook, one of our most popular destinations for quiet contemplation of this natural, fresh-water pond.
Two very large Buttonwood trees were uprooted, falling into the pond taking the Overlook with them. The Overlook was moved off of its foundation and needs to be completely restored. It cannot be repaired.
This is an expensive challenge for the not-for-profit Garden. Thankfully a generous anonymous donor has stepped forward with a $20,000 gift that helps us toward our goal. Please consider your own gift to the Key West Botanical Garden Society to help us match the gift from our wonderful Garden donor and supporter. Doing so will ensure we can proceed with the Overlook restoration.

Our suggested minimum donation is $100. You may choose another amount or create a custom donation.
